Table 4 Morphometric data (in micrometres) for sporozoites of known hemococcidian species that infect American lizards and the new haplotypes found in the present study

From: Phylogenetic analyses reveal that Schellackia parasites (Apicomplexa) detected in American lizards are closely related to the genus Lankesterella: is the range of Schellackia restricted to the Old World?
